Arsenal determined to agree deal for Barcelona £65,000 a-week stopper

By | June 10, 2021

Arsenal will attempt to secure services of Barcelona stopper Neto ahead of the next campaign, according to the report.

The 31-year-old has played second fiddle to Marc Andre-ter Stegen since arriving at Barca from Spanish outfits Valencia back in 2019.

With Ter Stegen ruled out of the Catalans’ final game of the campaign against Eibar through injury, Neto will start for the seventh time in the league this campaign.

However, Mundo Deportivo suggests that it is likely to be the one-cap Brazil international’s final games for Barcelona.

Arsenal are believed to remain interested in Neto, having previously missed out on a loan contract for the keeper in January.

The links with Brazil international come amid rumours that Bernd Leno could be on his way out of the Emirates Stadium in the summer.

Meanwhile, Arsenal-linked Nabil Fekir has revealed he is happy at the La Liga club Real Betis and he’s not concerned about future plans as his only focus is on helping his side clinch a European spot finish in the league this season.

The Gunners are interested in adding a number 10 to their ranks this summer and are keen on making Real Madrid-owned youngster Martin Odegaard’s move permanent.

However, the Norwegian is less likely to stay at Arsenal beyond his current stint and the club are considering other possible targets, including Real Betis midfielder Fekir. All Rights Reserved 2019
